Three Fears

For sketchbook class we're assigned to illustrate our fears. I went for the obvious on this one. I'll post a couple more when they're finished. I also haven't really rendered something in quite awhile, so it was kind of nice to get back into that.

Fear no. 1: loss of eyes

Fear no. 2: loss of teeth

Fear no. 3: loss of left hand

Ink Test

I've recently taken down squishing ink onto a page and toying with the results. The one on the right is actually the other side of the semi-transparent matte duralar. I didn't plan for it to be a Rorschach test but Ink splotches usually go well when mirrored together.

In Progress

So I've basically been in a rut for most of this year, as of now. The end result of my projects haven't really been fitting my expectations, so I've been severely lacking with the blog updates. As the semester progresses I'll have more work, for better or for worse. Hopefully for better!

This piece isn't really close to being done yet. I've spent most the time establishing the lighting and values. It's actually a real pool I saw a few months ago and have been dying to have a go at, and I was fortunate enough to be able to incorporate it into one of my assignments. I'm debating adding another figure to help balance the composition.

100% photoshop. Feel free to crit! There's still some changes to be made/major refinement, but still.
